Electron White-Board Review
Students will be able to…
• Write orbital configurations, electron configurations, and noble gas notations for different elements.
• Identify correct and incorrect orbital configurations, electron configurations, and noble gas notations.
• Identify the number of orbitals and possible electrons for each sublevel: s, p, d, and f.
• Identify which rules are being broken: Hund’s Rule, Pauli Exclusion Principle, and/or Aufbau Principle
• Electron White-Board Review (Located in PowerPoint Presentation. Key embedded within.)
• Electron Configuration Review WS (Same questions as the White-Board Review only presented in WS format. Located in PDF document.)
• Electron Configuration Review WS – KEY (Located in PDF document.)
(All items contained in a compressed zip file. PDF documents cannot be edited.)
Additional Required Materials:
• Individual White-Board per student
• Dry Erase Marker per student
• White-Board Eraser per student (Paper towels work great!)
• Periodic Table per student
Provide each student with a white-board, dry erase marker, eraser, and Periodic Table. Ask students to read the directions. Place the first question on the board via the PowerPoint. Students will answer the question on their white-board. As each student answers the question, they will hold up their white-board and show the answer to the teacher. The teacher should respond with a thumbs-up for correct answers and a “try again” for incorrect answers. Students who answer incorrectly will continue to try answering the problem until they answer correctly. The teacher provides hints and helps as needed for struggling students. Students are NOT allowed to shout-out answers. Students will answer and show their answer on the white-board at different paces. Once the class has completed the problem, show the correct answer (located on the next slide), OR ask a student to write the answer on the class white-board/chalk-board. Continue this process working through all problems. This activity will provide students with immediate feedback and will help teachers identify areas where students are struggling. The “Electron Configuration Review WS” (same questions as the White-Board Review) can be assigned to students who were absent and/or given to students as a hard copy of the review for students to study at home.
• A participation grade may be given for this activity.
• After everyone has had a chance to complete a question, a volunteer can write the answer on the board.
• Skip questions in the review that students understand and find easy. Spend more time on the problems where students need more practice. This is a great way for teachers to discover class weaknesses with the content. This review can be used to identify areas that need to be retaught.
